News: Opportunity to hold a remanufacturing workshop
The CRR recently hosted a workshop at IDEA 2008 in Leamington Spa.
Thursday, 29th May 2008
Fiona Kelday, Dr Andrew King (University of Bristol) and Casper Gray (Wax RDC) delivered a short introduction to remanufacturing, including an overview of business models and a case study of the Wax RDC feasibility project, funded by the CRR in 2007. This was followed by a 15 minute interactive session which saw audience members split into three groups to discuss whole systems design, core collection and technologies to aid remanufacturing. The session prompted some interesting debates and proved to be a useful way to create awareness of the benefits and opportunities in remanufacturing to a new audience. If you would like the CRR to host a workshop on remanufacturing at your event please email us with 'Workshop' in the subject field.
